LIMA, Martha Bento. Embracing Dissonance: Towards a Composing Clinic of Care of the Self. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.3, pp. 180-199. ISSN 2238-152X.

Between 2011 and 2015 we conducted a Musical Composition Workshop with young people from a community centre in the Morro dos Macacos (Monkeys’s Hill) slum in Rio de Janeiro. This essay offers an account of our intervention experience carried out with the young people. With music serving as a dispositif for the expansion and singularization of life, our work enabled the creation of ethico-aesthetic practices guided by an ethic of Care of the Self. This account details the challenging sonorous set-up of the workshop in the slum during the first months, the problematizing of the experiences, the difficulties encountered and the clinical-aesthetic strategies that we sought to develop within a complex reality in light of concepts from the Philosophy of Difference, Donald Winnicott’s psychoanalytical thought and Michel Foucault’s philosophy.

Keywords : Music; Clinic; Policy; Youth; slum.
